Joeiji Temple Sesshu Garden

1. Joeiji Temple Sesshu Garden

The legend of this garden tells that 29th Ouchi family Masahiro ordered to a master painter Sesshu to make this garden in the mid-Muromachi era. However, no record tells about Sesshu or proves the legend was true.

This garden includes Musenike pond, and is a typical dry garden style in the Muromachi era, which is dynamic and simple at the same time.
